Selling Hostess Twinkies and Hostess Cup Cakes?

Did you hear Hostess filed bankruptcy after their employees walked out and went on strike because they wanted more pay for their time and efforts in making the most delicious and popular snack cakes and bread. Sadly consumers will never be able to taste the delightful goodness of Hostess Twinkies, Hostess Cup Cakes or even Wonder Bread ever again. When I heard the news I ran to store to get my hands on a few boxes. Funny enough other than Wonder Bread and those little round donuts that my family loves in the morning when we are pressed for time I don’t buy Hostess Snack Cakes very often unless they are on sale and maybe not even then.

This will be the last time my boys enjoy Hostess goodness. Years from now they look back on this photo and wonder…

What in the world was I eating?

The isles are filled with distraught lovers of Hostess products and some kids are even crying. Many are saying Hostess big wigs have something up their sleeves. They’ll regroup and go back into business and everyone selling Hostess Twinkies and Hostess Cupcakes on ebay for $20 – $500 a box will enjoy their profits now but all I have to say is check that expiration date people ’cause the box I bought from the store on FRIDAY actually expired TODAY!!

All I have to say is I feel bad for the employees that were just trying to feed their families and shame on Hostess for trying to break the Union. I’ve seen your salary’s and you couldn’t just give in a little? Hope you enjoy your Christmas knowing you put so many family’s out of work and ruined theirs.

One women in line told me she’d never buy them cause of what they did to their employees.

While another girl cried Debbie Swiss rolls don’t taste as good as Hostess Ho Ho’s.

Well all I got to say is I start my diet just as soon as we finish this box of Twinkies or perhaps I should just save my waist line and my cholesterol level from spiking and  sell individual Twinkies on ebay or Craigslist for $50 a piece. We have 9 left!! Shhhhhhh.

Here’s something to think about. During bankruptcy all assets are sold. Even the name and recipes could be back on the market before too long. When investors see the cry from consumers missing these delightful tasty little treats they’ll scoop up Hostess and begin distribution once again.

Or you can always try Allrecipes.com Homemade Twinkie Recipe and begin making your own at home. I hear they are even better than Hostess Twinkies. Imagine that!

  1. i am so glad they turned this around and are now keeping them

  2. I haven’t had Twinkies in a long time and I’ll be fine if I never eat them again..

  3. I don’t eat twinkies but it’s sad to think of a world without them!

  4. I’m not even worried about it. Someone will buy the brand and recipes and we’ll see them before too long!

  5. I think it’s a sad situation because it’s affected so many people, including local bread stores that had to close because Hostess was their main supplier. I think another company will buy them out soon but that doesn’t help the short-term. I’m shocked at how much people are paying for them on eBay. I looked around local stores to see if any were still on shelves and the whole town is out.

  6. Every now and then I need a Twinkie. When I was pregnant with my first son, I couldn’t get enough Twinkies. I had a case in every car, my school backpack, all over our apartment–pretty much everywhere. My hubby thought I was crazy.

  7. I was never a fan thankfully :)

    My husband wanted to go stock up, but we never did.

  9. I haven’t purchased Hostess products in years. We won’t miss it.

  10. Actually, Hostess filed bankruptcy back in January. LOL I think they just announced it now. My sister works at Walgreens and they stopped receiving shipments months ago.

  11. I haven’t had a twinkie in years and I don’t think this is the last that we’ll see of these products.

  12. It’s been a long time since I had a twinkie. I can live a full, happy life without them.
